Okay, I have come up with what may be an answer to my own question and would like an expert to verify my solution before I impliment it. I notice the pump quiets down a little after the car is running. The pump is at its noisiest when I first turn the key before the motor starts. So, if I add a return line, will this quiet the pump down? My thinking is that if the pump is not trying to push fuel that is blocked by the regulator and lack of carb not taking it, then the return line will relieve the pressure that is built up thus making the pump "happier" and quieter. This logic works for my wife, so maybe it will work for my fuel pump too. Does this make sense?
If so, please let me know. If I don't get a response well then darn it...I'm going to do it anyway and find out, so there.
